Google Drive / Filestream Using Lots of Battery

I have just just been setting up a new Macbook.   I was expecting the batterylife to be 12 hours.  However, Google Filestream was just continously sycning and using battery.  Google Filestream shouldn’t sync anything…. however the probelm was that Bitdefender was scanning everyfile in the filestream.   Hence the computer was continuously syncing file after file.

The solution was to add an exception into the Bitdefender settings:

You click on the bottom right for exception and then add in the Google Drive share:

I hope this helps someone else.
